Why is Running Aces Suing Grand Casino and Treasure Island?

The Columbus, Minnesota racetrack is claiming that by offering card games other than blackjack, Grand Casino and Treasure Island are "depriving Running Aces of substantial revenue and profits."

Minnesota allows for the two horse tracks in the state, Running Aces and Canterberry Park to offer card games like poker, blackjack, and Pai Gow, but only allows Tribal casinos to offer blackjack and slot machines.

The lawsuit is asking that Grand Casino and Treasure Island stop offering these games and pay financial damages to Running Aces, who says, "tribal casinos are fighting to preserve their dominance by resisting Running Aces’ efforts to expand table games."
